CEO responds to launch of DUP policy plan

19 November 2019

 

Colin Neill, Chief Executive of Hospitality Ulster, reacted to the launch of the DUP ‘Let’s Get Northern Ireland Moving Again’ document:

“We welcome the commitments reiterated today on the need to modernise Liquor Licensing and the overhaul of the non-domestic rating system here in the latest ‘Let’s Get Northern Ireland Moving Again’ document launched by DUP Party Leader, Arlene Foster today.”

 

“We need everyone now to work in the same direction during this Westminster election period and recognise that the hospitality industry is currently operating in an anti-business environment where our sector is struggling with the high rate of hospitality VAT, extortionate business rates and ever increasing wage bills, compounded by labour and migration issues brought about by Brexit fears. This is not to mention the minimal economic growth predicted over the next year by some of our leading economists and the need to be given the opportunity to increase our consumer base to balance the books.”
